Scatting….. I’m gonna leave that fear to cower down in its own shadow I’m gonna leave that doubt to close the door on itself I’m gonna let that anger drown itself into the flames of judgement I’m gonna let that righteous judgment sentence itself I’m gonna leave those lies a fallen down into a cheating hole I gotta get myself from the fallen angels Up to where the big trees grow I gotta get myself from Texas I gotta get up to New Mexico This little light of mine Said I’m gonna let it shine Yeah, won’t let no one put it out I”m gona let it shine Cause when you curse the darkness You block the light If you join the battle You’ve lost the fight Scatting… I’m gonna let the pride get swallowed up by its own boasting I’m gonna let that blind revenge devour itself I’m gonna leave that jealousy ride envy into the grave I’m gonna leave that hate a squeezing the blood from its heart Walk through the valley of judgement But myself I try to judge not Was it not by the foolishness of judgement All of these wars have been fought This little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine And I won’t let no one put it out I’m gonna let it shine Cause when you curse the darkness You block the light If you join the battle You’ve lost the fight

She called out to me I had to go (cried out for me) Down to the river To see her flow She knows something I’d like to know She sings beautifully, she sings nice She sings that you can’t step in the same river twice (Diga me x 3 Diga me x 3 Diga me x3 Diga me x 3 Diga me x 3) If the only constant is change Then why do I find it so hard to rearrange My ways If change is the only constant Why am I so hell bent on not losin’ it? She called out to me Had to go (cried out for me) Down to the river To see her flow She knows something I’d like to know She sings beautifully, she sings nice She sings that you can’t step in the same river twice If the only constant is change Then why do I find it so hard to rearrange My ways If change is the only constant Why am I so hell bent on not losin’ it? (Diga me x 3 Diga me x 3 Diga me x3 Diga me x 3 Diga me x 3)

Everything you say and do Comes from one of two places in you Its either by love or fear That we do the things that we do Tryin’ to live by love But fear just keeps on taking me down to the bottom I’m tryin to live by love But fear is where I was taught to come from Original prayer, out there Before I was born, I was sworn Angels on my left Ancestors to my right Singin, to the flesh you’ll soon go Forgetting all that you now know, turn it back around And remember us again Now I been seein’ Every one of us Has a mountain That we can climb I am at the bottom Lookin' to the top See the higher me One I wanna be Said I got lost Lookin' for the way Following the others Tellin’ me they know But they don’t know The way for me I know the way, now I got the power I heard something calling me from the top of the mountain Sayin’ there’s no one who knows better than you so understand You are the captain of your ship The ruler of your seas Led by thoughts just like stars you place up in your sky You the one you been waiting for You the one you been searching for You the one you been hoping for you the one you been looking for If not you, then who If not now, then when Is a good time to begin Something is calling You are in a storm of thought that your thought began Thoughts command your life so your thoughts you must command We the ones weve been waiting for We the ones we've been hoping for We the ones we've been looking for Something is calling We’re the ones weve been searching for We’re the ones weve been asking for We’re the ones we've been singing for Something is calling If not you, then who If now now, then when Is a good time to begin We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for

No you can’t fit the sea in a bottle Nor can you count every grain of sand No you can’t stare at the sun forever Nor can you catch lightening in your hand Just like I can’t fit the way I feel for you in a word So I hope that this song will do Here’s the way it goes Here’s the way you know Here’s the way it shows My feelings for you Like the river flows Down into the sea They become one
Just like you and me Like the wind that blows Clouds up in the sky I know that together we can fly No you can’t pull the stars from the sky Nor can you stop time from passin’ by No you cant stop the wind from blowin south Nor can you catch all them raindrops in your mouth No I can’t fit the way I feel for you in a word So I hope that this song will do Here’s the way it goes Here’s the way you know Here’s the way it shows My feelings for you Like the river flows Down into the sea They become one
Just like you and me Like the wind that blows Clouds up in the sky I know that together we can fly Sometimes I can’t believe its true Sometimes when I’m here holding you Sometimes hard to believe its true Sometimes here I am with you No you can’t push the waves back into the ocean Nor can you undo what has been done Just like I can’t fit the way I feel for you in a word So I hope this song will do Here’s the way it goes Here’s the way you know Here’s the way it shows My feelings for you Like the river flows Down into the sea They become one
Just like you and me Like the wind that blows Clouds up in the sky I know that together we can fly Its yours and mine Its yours and its mine Oh, yours and mine Its our time, yeah Its yours and mine Oh yeah, I’m telling you Yeah, I feel this is our time…

If a good horse runs by the shadow of a whip Why then do I take the trip? I sing for the ones who’ve passed and gone Or should I say they sing for me Telling me of the time that they lived Things they wish they would have done Saying, “Son, it’s your time.” A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip Why then do I take a sip Oh now when the battle gets harder and harder There’s too much fire and I need some water A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip Why then do I take a sip A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip And then a take a trip A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip Hey I know, know I’m gonna get the whip, yeah Destiny finds those who are listening Fate catches up with all the rest Are you heading all the callings and the warnings Learn what you can ‘Cause its not a test, oh Find in trees Books in running brooks There’s sermons in stones And there’s stories from the bones Because a good horse runs by the shadow of a whip Why then do I take a sip When I know the route its the same it was the last time You take the trip Then you pay the fine A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip When then do I take the sip A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip I take a sip and then I take the trip

When you’re caught in the clutches of what you grab You wield the knife but yourself you stab What you hunt takes your power away Hunter then becomes the prey Release now from my bands By the strength of my own hands I am the King of me and my destiny I am the gatekeeper of my mind Like silence refused by the drum To these falsities I will not succumb And like darkness refused by the sun I sing back these clouds of confusion The time has come to sing forth for some For whose time has come
To unite as one Up from the shadows we come Breaking the bonds of illusion By the law that says we are all one I’m up to get some self sovereignty I am the king of me Sovereignty I am the king of me And my destiny I’m the gatekeeper of my mind The intuiter of the sign You rule you and I rule me He that angers you, conquers you She that brings you down has stolen you Kings and queens, get your self sovereignty Its about getting your mind free Like silence refused by the drum To these falsities I will not succumb And like darkness refused by the sun I sing back these clouds of illusion The time has come to sing forth for some For whose time has come
To unite as one Up from the shadows we come Breaking bonds of illusion By the law that says we are all one I hear a new song its called “self sovereignty” I am the king of me Sovereignty I rule my destiny

When the many have a little and the few have a lot History has taught Guns will be shot When the few have it all and the many have not Wars have been fought Solutions must be sought Before the many rise And take what the few have got What the few have got Backs are not ladders to be climbed for free Things cant go on as they’ve gone before Many have died so the rich could have more We’ve got to make poverty history When a child gets sold by an auctioneer Got to interfere The one who’s the profiteer When the money means more than the atmosphere Fools domineer Situation’s severe Now the beat gets strong And deceit disappear All becomes clear Strength replaces fear Life, not money, I revere Backs are not ladders to be climbed for free Things cant go on as they’ve gone before Many have died so the rich could have more We’ve got to make poverty history Trickle down Didn’t make it to the ground So sayeth us So sayeth the dust When the many have a little and the few have a lot History has taught Guns will be shot When the few have it all and the many have not Wars have been fought Solutions must be sought Before the many rise And take what the few have got What the few have got Backs are not ladders to be climbed for free Things cant go on as they’ve gone before Many have died so the rich could have more We’ve got to make poverty history When the many have a little and the few have a lot When the few have it all and the many have not

Something in the night killed the owl And I’m telling you it was not the wind Somethings goin’ down Times are changin’ up Stop look and listen Things are rearranging Everything is changin’ Gotta get down to get up Siftin through the ashes What can you find When everything is to be redefined Hear the same voice saying again and again Are you ready to begin This is the age of aquarius Upon us Look at the times now and how they’re changing This is the age of aquarius Hear the sound of System Krush What can’t bend, may break Things can’t remain the same The dawning of aquarius The truth becomes us Far beyond what we’ve been taught Something in the night killed the owl And I’m telling you It was not the wind Greatest story never told Now begins to unfold Things hard for us to believe Things we can hardly conceive of We are not alone Nor have we ever been The truth can’t remain hidden Long it has been known But never ever shown Forbidden by the system Said its been a long time coming And its finally coming our way Long time comin And I’m so happy to say Are you ready to begin This is the age aquarius Look at the wonder all around us So many things we’ve never imagined before This is the age of aquarius See now the signs are telling us Things are changing Something’s happening No one can deny This is the age of aquarius Look at the young ones among us Dawning of aquarius Like the moon is the dawn’s promise So is this time Upon us This is the age of aquarius Stars and the stones are telling us This is the dawning of aquarius Oh here we go

Precious innocence Stolen from the children Any fool in love Like guns and ammunition Saw a broken heart I tried to be kind Said I was taught to hate Said love is what youre made of This child soldier Forced to spill the blood Of his brothers and sisters Of the ones he loves What he once knew as Family and home Had been turned To blood, brick and bone I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine I'm wondering Oh how long Shall they drink blood for wine? I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine Caught in the crossfire Children playing nearby Out in the streets Heard the shots, heard them cry Scatter everywhere No time to ask why Some say hell is far I saw it all that day Someone else's war That millions are killed for Of the foolishness of the few Innocence shot down Many children die Shattered hopes and dreams Blood runs in the streams I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine I'm wondering Oh how long Shall they drink blood for wine? I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine They're not just the other ones They're not just the other The other ones They're not just the other The other ones
